RSVP List for Billy Graham’s Funeral Is Filling Up, Guess Which US President Is Refusing to Attend

news, politics, world

Kirsters Baish| I’m sure a lot of people come to the top of your mind when you think about American icons who helped shape 20th century society in our country. I’m sure you think of scientists and politicians and performers, and one name in particular from a different category. That man is Evangelical Christian Reverend Billy Graham. When he died this month at 99 years old, the sheer amount of love and support from the people of America proved that Graham had a large effect on our country over the years.

Fox News reported:

Thousands of people from all walks of life — including a former president — filed slowly past the casket of the Rev. Billy Graham on Monday to pay their final respects to a man who reached millions with his message of salvation through Jesus Christ.

A light drizzle greeted mourners on hand at 8 a.m. when the doors opened to Graham’s boyhood home, but it had tapered by the late afternoon when former President George W. Bush arrived with his wife, Laura. The viewing was expected to last late into the night for the famed evangelist, who died Wednesday at age 99.

Those who came to mourn the loss of Reverend Graham, came from all walks of life, all races, and all ages. Graham’s casket was closed and on top of a black pedestal. Mourners made their way past family photos. There was a cross made from white lilies.

It’s always a big deal when someone like Billy Graham dies. Not only are Americans taking notice, but people from around the world are mourning the loss of Reverend Graham. He befriended lots of United States presidents during his career all the way back to President Eisenhower. Some have attributed George W. Bush’s presidency to Reverend Graham.

Former President George W. Bush paid his respects to Reverend Graham on Monday.

Bush arrived with his wife, Laura. The viewing was expected to last late into the night for the famed evangelist, who died Wednesday at age 99.

Bush has said he chose Monday because he had a scheduling conflict with the funeral. He was greeted by Graham’s son Franklin and spent about 30 minutes with the family during a private viewing.

Graham’s funeral will be on Friday, and all living former presidents are invited to attend. President Trump is reported to have said that he would be there, but I guess former President Barack Obama has too much to do. He’s simply too busy to show a little respect.

Associated Press reported that former President Barack Obama is not planning on going to memorial services for Reverend Billy Graham this week. Obama’s office made this news public on Monday. Let’s be real here for a second. I think we know the real reason that Obama doesn’t want to go to Reverend Graham’s funeral. Graham stood for Christianity, and Obama spent eight years trying to remove Christianity from our country all together. It seems to me that there is a hidden agenda here.
